Foothill baseball filled with college talent

Foothill baseball’s head coach Angelo Scavone seems like he could go on and on about the players in his program receiving collegiate baseball offers. According to Scavone, there are five different players on the team who have received offers.

Headlining this list is 6’ 5” right-handed pitcher Matt Ager. Ager has committed to play at UC Santa Barbara next season. So far this year, he has been off to a great start. Through the team’s first eight games, Ager has appeared in five of them. In these five appearances, he has a 3-1 record with a 1.22 ERA. 

Another standout pitcher on the team is left-hander Nathan Shinn. Shinn has committed to playing next season at San Francisco State. So far this season, Shinn is 2-0 in his four appearances with a 0.61 ERA. He also has 25 strikeouts to only four walks in those appearances. 

On the position player side, Foothill has quite a few standouts as well. Senior center fielder Caleb Lamle has committed to playing at UC Santa Barbara. Through six eight this year, he is batting .250 with a home run. Junior third baseman Jack Basseer is committed to USC. He is currently batting .286 this year. Lastly, senior outfielder Max Mcgee is currently deciding between offers from multiple schools, including the University of Tennessee. So far this season, Mcgee is batting .385 with a home run, a double and seven RBIs.

The Foothill baseball team is off to a good start this season, going 5-3 through its first eight games. They are going to be one of the few sports that gets a full season this year. They are able to have a maximum of 24 games this year, and Foothill has 22 currently scheduled. This is great to see after getting their season cut very short last year due to COVID-19.

After its good start to the season, Foothill is looking to continue it for its whole schedule. Look for its many college recruits to stand out this season.
